Memories of Martha's Vineyard

Nancy's House, Martha's Vineyard
9" x 12"
Oil with a palette knife on cradled board

Sarah commissioned this painting of her mother's house on Martha's Vineyard. Sadly, her family recently had to sell it, so Sarah wanted to have a reminder of the house and the beautiful gardens that held so many wonderful memories of her mother. Sarah has a great blog called Unshoveling the Past where she recounts many stories of her family growing up. She accompanies her stories with old family photographs, and of course, I want to paint each and every one of them!

That is a lovely painting. Made even lovelier by the link to her blog. Very touching and poignant.

What a beautiful home! I am so glad your friend will have this beauty to remember this place always.
